Got a Switch game today and the generic cases now say "Certified Pre-owned. Cleaned, tested, guaranteed."

LOL



They tested it... tested it to see if it fit in the generic case.
Great success!!!
Oh and they also used their shirt to clean the pins and scratch the discs, also a win!

Well I got cash back instead of trade credit (because I used coupons and trade credit???) and didn't get my $10 pur back.

Did chat with GS online afterwards and they said they'd give me a 1 time refund of the points. So I guess it doesn't hurt to ask...(edit..points refunded).

I got the same thing today and just assumed it was a regional thing that I hadn't seen at my local store. Their generic cases are so ugly.

Just got a $30 off pre-owned game coupon for making a purchase during the spring sale. Didn't know this was a thing.

After struggling trying to get last week's 30% promo to work and failing, decided to order Wonderful 101, 13 Sentinels, and Persona 5 Royal new anyway.

Both P5 and W101 were shipped "new" in paper sleeves and 13 Sentinels hasn't even been picked up yet.

Expedited shipping? Don't think so.

Yeah it was a $10, $20, or $30 depending on how much in pre-owned games you bought. I think there may have been one for collectibles too. I haven't received mine for my pre-owned games though

I've had very bad gamestop luck from that sale too. All my "new" games haven't been new so far and all the used have come in generic cases. One even just came in a sleeve like you described. I honestly haven't shopped with gamestop in awhile so this is reminding me why I stopped. I honestly think when they ship items from stores they pick the worst looking copies and that way when they sell stuff in person they have the items that look the best.

Deal of the day is Buy 3 Get 2 Xbox One games

Don’t believe that there is one or the site hasn’t been updated. On all platforms the only option for the game is New, and the preowned option is not even available for either platform.

If that’s the case, the site should say “limited availability” on low stock items and you can only buy in store (similar to Target’s online system). I realize most shoppers aren’t like me who uses site inventory to hunt for hard to find items, but saying a store doesn’t have an item when it does is incredibly stupid.


I hope this Chewy guy can turn GameStop’s website around because their current product manager is fucking stupid. Just so many bad decisions.

Anyone else preorder the Eddie Guerrero gamestop exclusive funko pop? I'm still waiting on mine to ship, it's been at "awaiting item availability" all week.

No idea if this is legit, but: https://www.gamestop...21&lang=default

 

Oddly, if you search for MWT41121, it does 365 entries instead of 362.  mwt41021 all the way to mwt41920 works as search strings.

Looks good. Even includes releases up through January.

Does anyone know when doing a return to GameStop where you used the $5 monthly on that purchase if you get that coupon back or how to go about it?

You would call CS.

I guess if this *is* legit, it truly doesn't start until tomorrow.  Has there ever been a stealth bump that didn't start on a Friday?

Or, alternately, read 2 pages back where someone asked the exact same question.

There have been times where it didn't start until Saturday. It's rare, but it has happened.

Because there's definitely no way I would've missed that or known not to look there, right? Hold that comment man. It looks ugly on you.

A Most-Wanted Trade Email just arrived. Values aren't yet updated on the app or website and don't match with the values in the email. It could be updated in-store (like the nukes two Sundays ago).

Not seeing trade value changes yet either. Strangely, it shows PS4 Pro value at 247.50 in my email, which I think should be 225 in reality unless they started giving 10% trade pro boost on hardware.

I think they were doing transfers before the pandemic, pay for something and they have an employee pick it up from a nearby store and bring it over, but I'm not sure about that now.

$247.50 sounds amazing...i wouldn't mind downgrading myself

If the employees at both stores were cool, they used to be able to do it.  I live in the Philly area and they called a store in Brooklyn to ship to my store.  The managers knew each other from the annual manager conference they used to go to.

Yes they can but YMMV. Helps to be nice and fill out surveys.

Yeah, the two games and value it lists on my Most Wanted Trade e-mail are the exact same value they've been for a few weeks, and it also links me to the "mwt41121" string.  Maybe bumps start on Sundays now to correspond with weekly ads.
